Serve It. Smash It. Win It. Love It.

 

Racquets & Jackets Doubles

Don’t let your tennis fun end Nov – Jan! Check out Racquets & Jackets, a USTA growth league.  Our mild Carolina winters mean doubles play can continue beyond the fall season. The level of play ranges from 2.5 – 4.5. Higher – rated players play Court 1, while lower – rated players cover Courts 2 & 3. Participants receive the highly coveted R & J league shirts. Don’t miss out!

Note: The USTA rating change occurs during the R & J season; however, any rating changes (up or down) will have no impact on players. A player’s rating at the time of registration will be valid for the entire season.

Division winners will be declared at the end of season. Playoffs between Saturday & weekday flights will occur the first Saturday after the end of the season. Division champions will receive awards.
